Harriet Manners knows a lot of facts.
She knows that humans have 70,000 thoughts per day.
She knows that Geek + Model = a whole new set of graffiti on your belongings.
And that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this.
But Harriet doesn’t know where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives. And with her summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get away.
Title: Geek Girl: Model Misfit
Author: Holly Smale
Publisher: HarperCollin’s Children’s Books
I have said this probably a dozen times before, but just to add emphasis to the fact – I LOVE CHILDREN’S BOOKS! They are easy to read, entertaining, educational, and sometimes there’s even a happy ending.
So you can imagine how much I enjoyed reading Model Misfit after I’d finished Wolf Hall. Two completely different books, so much so that I probably shouldn’t put them in the same sentence; but both incredible examples of their own genres.
Holly Smale pulls off this sequel with ease; it’s charming, humorous, and has a whole bunch of new facts to learn from. I read it in about 3 hours and smiled through pretty much all of it.
If you want an easy read, light-hearted read for yourself; or are looking for the next book to buy your child (as you should be consistently getting them books, obviously); the this is the book for you.
